Media Advisory: Deputy Mayor Pantalone to announce winners of youth photo contest
  
Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone will announce the winners of Mobile City, an urban photo contest for youth in the twin cities of Toronto and Milan this week. The 10 winners from Toronto will be announced at an event at Artcore Gallery.

More than 170 Toronto youth submitted over 700 images to the contest. The short list and winning photographs were chosen by a selection panel convened specially for this project and made up of independent photography, art and design professionals. The 10 winners will be chosen in each city to travel to their twin city to participate in a group exhibit and further their photographic work. Selections from the winning photographs will be published in a book in the fall of 2008.

Date: Tuesday, June 3
Time: 7 p.m. (reception); 7:15 p.m. (official remarks)
Location: Artcore Gallery, 55 Mill St., Pure Spirits Building 62, The Distillery District

The project called for youth 16 to 22 years of age in both cities to share their dreams and insights about urban life through the creation of digital photographs. The resulting photographs, along with a short artist statement about the work, are posted on the Mobile City website, http://www.mobilecityphoto.org.

The Mobile City is a joint initiative of the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Toronto, the City of Toronto, the City of Milan and the Province of Milan.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years, Toronto has won more than 70 awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
